In need of some technical support...

Postby da1chipo » Sun Aug 20, 2006 4:17 pm

I just got a new Toshiba 42HM66 tv, and a new time warner hd-dvr. I've been trying to program the cable box remote to control power and volume for the tv, but I've been following all the programming steps and it doesn't work. I've done the step where you search for a code automatically, and I've programmed the remote to use that code. However, instead of working right, when I press the TV power button on the remote, it makes the volume go down, like I'm pressing the volume down button. The volume buttons don't do anything. I guess the TV just isn't interpreting the signal from the remote correctly.

Can anyone tell me what's going on, and if you know, how to fix it?

Is there a chance that the remote is faulty or that your TV is too new for that remote?? Maybe the code isn't in there for your TV but it is partially recognizing the code.

I used the old remote for a few days and it did the same thing. Then I got the new box and a new remote and nothing changed. So pretty much the remote being faulty is ruled out.

Yeah, it's not really a problem, but I'd like to be able not to have to use two remotes for basic tv watching.

Simple solution:

Slap it on the side of the box with your hand.

Try blowing in it...

Remember old Nintendo cartridges? Everyone had their own method for getting them to work. I had some games, like the original Bases Loaded, that required about 10 blow-and-trys.

I had a friend who swore by the method of not specifically blowing, but more like making the cartridge smell is breath (it was weird). He said that the warmer air from doing that is what worked best.

I had another friend who always put his t-shirt over the bottom of the cartridge before blowing; this is tried and true as well because the moisture from your breath can damage the game.

Then there were people with patterns; hard blow, hard blow, soft blow, soft blow... it was unusual but we all did it.

loved the old blow trick...i have an old Atari 2200 (or one of them) that i hook up now and again but i left in in the garage for a whole year and i think the summer/winter cycle fried it becasue it only works half the time or just freezes up in the middle of Jungle Hunt
